who else is out there? O - Z A - D E - N
|Belgian band with poppy, semi-electronical tunes. Not heard of since summer '99, although Piet Goddaer (frontman of the band) released an album march 2001 with a different project, called Sunzoo Manley.|
Pawlowski made a remarkable entrance in the 'Belgian music scene', when
he and his band Evil Superstars won the Humo Rock Rally in 1994. He also
has been seen aside of Peter Houben in Mitsoobishy Jacson, and as guitar
player in Kiss My Jazz and X-legged Sally. He has also been spotted in a small, experimental band called 'Monguito'. (no releases so far)|
Since 1999, he's been working on new songs on his own, which he now plays together with his newly founded band, 'The Alternatives' (previously 'The Inferno's').
They released an album with this band in 2001, called 'Songs from a bad hat'.
Mauro's Evil Superstars were support act for dEUS several times in '95 and '96, and Mauro was on the Project Doos! cd-rom as well. When asked for his five most influencing musicians, rudy trouvé was one of them.
|An Pierlé was the little shy girl on the piano who made it to the humo rock rally finals in '96. Over three years later, she made her debut album 'Mud Stories', which proved very successful and popular in Belgium. Although best known for her solo work, she did a remarkable guest appearance on DAAU's second album, and in 1997, she also appeared (as well as Rudy Trouvé) on the Project Doos! cd-rom.|
Tom Pintens is known as prominent musician in Zita Swoon and Flowers for
Breakfast, and 'producer' of De Bossen, Think Of One and Flemming.|
He played the piano on a live version of ‘Jigsaw You’, a B-side of the dEUS-'Hotellounge' single. Rudy Trouvé isn’t on that track though. On the 'My Sister=My Clock' dEUS EP, Pintens plays the piano as well on ‘Little Ghost’, but again Rudy wasn’t really involved in that track.
|ROBERTSON, (VIKING) DAVE|
The oldest member of Kiss My Jazz by a long shot. After that band’s demise, Viking started up a new band,
called Wall of Sweat.|
Viking Dave also co-starred in ‘Dave’s great Idea’, and a sample of that film is also featured on the first Lionell Horowitz album.
In the eighties, Dave was in a rather well known band in Scotland, called The Valves.
hugely promising band which made it to the Humo Rock Rally finals. (in
'98) They're from Brussels, and have a debut maxi single out on the (now
broke) Oyster Records label, called Honey's dull.|
They were support act for Dead Man Ray in 2000 at least twice.
|SEVEN DEADLY VIOLINS|
|Seven deadly violins is the rumoured solo-project of Klaas Janzoons of dEUS. Nothing has been released, nothing has been heard. Judging by his weird songs released with dEUS, it could be a hugely interesting project.|
|The sexmachines are the punkrock-band of dEUS' Danny Mommens. They had one single out some years ago, called On stage, but stopped playing more or less immediately after Danny joined dEUS in 1997. In dEUS' sabbat years 2000 and 2001, Danny hopes to finally record an album with this band.|
|Sheneik is a rather obscure early member of Kiss My Jazz, of which I know nothing at all- not even his true identity.|
Youth are obviously not part of the Belgian/antwerp scene. They are Rudy
Trouvé-related though, as the band invited Rudy and Heaven's Basement
to do an aftershow on their gig in the AB in Brussels, the 5th of July
For Gore Slut, Rudy claims Sonic Youth was a source of inspiration as well.
popular band in Belgium, and increasingly successful across Europe and
the UK. The Ghent-based Dewaele brothers and their band are masters at
keeping their audience happy and entertained at live gigs, one of their
biggest trump cards.|
They debuted in 1995, and one EP and two albums later they are absolutely one of Belgium's biggest export products in the music industry.
While being involved in numerous musical projects, he earns his daily
bread by selling records in Antwerp's cd-store 'Brabo', and doing some
Two very distant Rudy links. Please do not read if you’re not a ‘hardcore’ fan of either.
Aldo plays the guitar on the demo version of the dEUS track ‘Everybody’s weird’ on the Instant Street single. Rudy already left dEUS 4 years earlier, but (here it comes)-at the very beginning of the video clip of Instant Street, Everybody’s weird is playing in the club the video was recorded in. Later on in that same video, Rudy makes a brief appearance, disguised as a cop. What a link!! The second relation with Rudy, is he helped recording the 'Radionation' single of Golf, also a band Aldo is in.
Oh- and Brabo sells Rudy Trouvé cds as well of course...:)

was a small project by Daan Stuyven and Wouter Van Belle, with which
they released two singles in 1996 and 1998. The first one was 'Geen
Franse wagens meer' - or 'No more French cars'. The band went to
playback the song once in Flanders' most popular and rubbish tv-music
show, 'Tien om te Zien', but after two weeks the single got banned from
airplay and sales, because of 'provocative lyrics'.|
(the single was released shortly after a huge Renault-factory closed down in Vilvoorde, with 3000 people fired). The second single 'De Koning van Vlaanderen' also got released, but was also ignored by radio stations. The lyrics this time were sort of an sarcastic expression of disgust towards the prime minister of Flanders back then, Luc Van Den Brande.
The music was cheesy, the lyrics in Dutch, and both singles got hardly any airplay. Small chance you'll have heard any of the songs, then.

|VAN BELLE, WOUTER|
|Earning a living as producer of Axelle Red, Novastar and others, and years ago of Volt and Supermarx as well, Wouter is in Dead Man Ray as the keyboard player. He also does part of the mixing and recording, and can be held responsible for the ‘unusual’ remixes of ‘Copy of ‘78’. For Kiss My Jazz and Boenox, he did some recordings too.|
|VAN BEVEREN, GEERT|
Geert did a lot of the recordings for the Kiss my Jazz and Lionell Horrowitz albums. Also, as well as Rudy Trouvé, he produced a single of Groep Jezus, and they both produced several tracks on Jef Mercelis' album in
Currently, he's in a project called B-Co, together with a Swiss musician named Sandra Cocciolo.
|VAN CAMP, ROEL|
|Apart from the Suds & Soda cover the anarchists did in 1994, Roel van Camp has also co-written one track (Les cheveux de Françoise Hardy) on the Lionell Horrowitz and his Combo album.|
|VAN LOOVEREN, BRAM|
|Together with Rudy in Lionell Horrowitz and his Combo as a guitarist. The song 'Le Bram’ (on an early demo tape) was named after him. He’s also responsible for the artwork on the Lionell Horrowitz album. Also, Bram is in Golf, of which Rudy did the recording of their first single ‘Radionation’ ('99), and he was in the 'Heaven's Basement' line-up, in July 2000. Bram apparently also did the layout for the first dEUS single, 'Zea'.|
|VAN ROSENDAEL, SIGRID|
|Rudy’s girlfriend. She also plays trumpet and keyboards in Lionell Horrowitz and his combo, and she played the keyboards on the last Kiss My Jazz tour. She also did a trumpet solo on a track of Dead Man Ray’s Berchem.|
He’s the frontman of bands as X-Legged Sally, Flat Earth Society and A
Group, and has a few solo-albums out under his own name, or under
Together with Pierre Vervloessem, he produced dEUS releases Zea, Worst Case Scenario and My sister=my clock. He also used to own an antiques store in Antwerp.
|Together with Peter Vermeersch, the frontman of X-Legged Sally, Flat Earth Society and A Group, and also a few solo-adventures. Pierre was also co-producer of dEUS’ Zea, Worst Case Scenario and my sister=my clock. He appeared on stage at least once with dEUS, where he played the guitar on some songs. Reportedly, the co-operation between Vervloessem and dEUS didn't work well. Vervloessem didn't like the music and would (or could) only help out on purely technical matters when they were producing dEUS' early releases.|
|VIVE LA FÊTE|
La Fête is Danny Mommens 'main side project'. Their first EP 'Je Ne
Veux Pas' was heard by Belgian fashion-guru Walter Van Beirendonck, and
invited Danny and his (ex-)girlfriend Els Pynoo to perform their songs
live at the catwalk in Paris.|
When Danny joined dEUS, the band hardly played anymore, but since dEUS started their sabbatical years in 2000, Vive La Fête quickly released a first full album. The live band of Vive La Fête as it is now also contains Julles De Borger, Dirk Cant and Jeroen Swinnen.
She did some vocals on the Lionell Horrowitz album, as well as ‘united
clock’ (whatever that may be) on a track on Dead Man Ray’s album
She also did the photography for the first Dead Man Ray album.
|WALL OF SWEAT|
|Wall of Sweat is the band Viking Dave Robertson started soon after the end of Kiss My Jazz, February 2000. Tomas Noppe and Geert van Bever are also in the band, and hopefully they'll start playing live soon.|
replaced Rudy after he left dEUS in 1995, but they still appeared together on
some dEUS tracks though. Craig and Rudy both form 'Cynthia Appleby and
friends', another obscure project, of which only some demo tracks and a
rare promo were ever released. Craig was in the earlier days also a member
of Kiss My Jazz, and in the very earliest days, also occasionally of Gore
Slut. Craig Ward starred as well in Rudy’s 1996 film,
Dave’s great idea, of which a
sample is used on the Lionell Horrowitz album.|
Recently, after since he left dEUS, he has been signalled working on the next Tindersticks album as a producer.
|The Wineguns are a punk-pop band from album, which are yet to release a first album. They have one EP out so far, with a first album theoretically scheduled sometime in 2001. The frontman of the band, Dimitri Brusselmans is also in the classical quartet Boenox.|
